House Party Blog Hop

Welcome to my house here on the south coast of England........open the door....come on in.......the music's on....the food's ready....grab yourself a drink........and prepare to have a good time........cause this party is going on around the world........with 20 houses joining in.......so you can blog hop round the globe.
This crazy house party is Rinda's idea........she makes wonderful altered chipboard houses.......and invited us all to party with her........sending us little 'baggies' of goodies to make our houses........we could use all of it.....some of it.......or none of it......I used most of mine.....with a few additions.
When I opened the bag....there were lots of florals....and a birds nest.
I looked at it all......and it shouted 'outdoors' to me.......so that's what I've gone with........not a house at all........but a garden shed.
I used the plain papers [distressed with inks] for the house and roof........plus some ribbon......the birds nest on the top with a couple of little flower packets added.
The shed contains a gardener [of course].......with one of Rinda's hearts......and at the front all the flowers she sent....plus some more.....you can't have too many flowers in a garden.
And here's my complete 'shed'.
But, of course, a garden shed needs to go with a house......so look out for my one of those coming very soon.
Hope you've enjoyed partying at mine.......and now it's time to party on over to Margi's and see her gorgeous creation.......if you end up partying too hard and get lost.......just pop over to Rinda's for a complete blog hop list.......and ENJOY.

Jacki,
I love, love, love what you did with this. Such a terrific gardening shed! And I can't wait to see what you cook up to go with this! Also, the front of your IRL house is so typically English! It's such fun to see it.
Thanks for partying with me.
Rinda

How cool... it is so neat to see all of the different things everyone is putting together. Fun!

Amy said...

Now every house has to have a shed! Great idea Jacky :-)

Cherry said...

What a suitable English garden shed Jacky - just a place to explore, imagine and dream. Bird on a roof too (obviously having a symbiotic thought!) just finishes it off. Have fun. Hugs Cherry XXX

Your shed is simply beautiful, Jacky. I love the way you combined the different flowers and the bird on the roof is perfect. Glad to see your lovely real house as well.

Love the idea of a garden shed. I like the look of your bungalow too. I want to move to a bungalow myself so I'm coming in to look around your party and meet the other guests!

Your real house is just lovely - I love the bay window! Your garden shed is perfect. The bird up top and all the flowers are just perfect for a spring day!

I was gone all weekend... so I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!
